This packet contains materials for an AgriSecurity lesson. Students will learn about Hoof and Mouth Disease and analyze the risk of disease infection on farms. A GIS -- ArcExplorer - Java Edition for Education -- will be used to develop a list of farms along a route traveled by an infected animal. GIS and the spatial data (an aerial photograph, route of the animal, and farms) are used to help students consider the spatial aspect to agricultural security.

This unit is well documented. I found it easy to use with teachers and students. Students wanted to learn more about how diseases are spread after working on this unit.
